Some long range Micro 9 plinking

Tonight I was able to hit the steel plate with my Micro 9 at100 yards. It was pretty fun. My hand loads of 115 gr have pretty good zip on them.

Nice shooting Tom, I wish I had access to an outside range.

I had to build my own. If I get the 100 yard shot down a little better I will film it

Thats awesome TomKat !! I'm not even sure I could see the target at 100 yds without the benefit of some visual aid

Don't know you Tom, but I won't piss you off even from 100 yards away if I ever meet you

Seriously, great shooting and I'm officially envious.

That's pretty good, I can hit a silhouette at 25 yards but no way could hit steel at 100, with my micro 9

Tom, I've been into handguns since the mid-60's, and used to read everything Elmer Keith wrote about sixguns. If you really want to have some fun with that little nine, try sitting against a tree or truck/car tire with your back braced. With both knees raised and the pistol held two-handed clamped between your knees, then try that 100 yard shot.

You'll find that once you have the proper sight picture, you can hit that plate almost every time at 100 yards. We do this with our .44 Mags on water-filled milk jugs at 100, 200 and 300 yards. It's amazing what can be done with a handgun at extended ranges, a whole lot of fun, and will make you a real long range pistolaro .

Good shooting regardless!

How far above the target center point did you have to aim to get the hit? And where did the slug hit the target?
